In partnership with Target, The Ludacris Foundation will host its annual "LudaCrismas" holiday event at Thomasville Center of Hope. Each year, Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges provides a Christmas celebration to inner city youth from all over the Atlanta area with the donation of toys, books, and winter clothing.

Recently, Mayor Kasim Reed and city officials toured Thomasville Center of Hope and accepted a $1.5 million donation from Wells Fargo, which will aid students with academics, sports and character-building programs.
